The Grass is always Greener
Monday, June 10, 2013      3 comments

Today I'm wondering why I don't even seem to be happy. From an observer's point of view, I am always smiling and laughing. I have a nice house, a good husband, a good looking son. I have a good paying job. I have lots of friends, but on the in... Read more
Soap Box Time
Thursday, June 06, 2013      2 comments

So I posted a blog yesterday after some advice regarding a program my trainer was pushing me to do. It has a high price tag and in my mind I was debating about whether I could justify the cost. I have a background in sport at an elite leve... Read more
Measurements are In and after advice on Metabolic Precision
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      6 comments

Everything is down by about 2 cms. I'm happy with that. The trainer at the gym wants me to do this thing called Metabolic precision. Its very expensive and I really don't think I'll gain enough out of it to try and even justify trying to ... Read more

The weekend is over
Sunday, May 26, 2013      2 comments

Why do we always wish for the weekend? Is it because work gets us down or we have two days to pretend we don't have to work? I don't know. I spend all week looking forward to the weekend and then all Sunday afternoon dreading Monday. ... Read more
Finally I ran!!!!!

I wasn't going to test out the hip running until Sunday. So I was on the dreaded treadmill at the gym last night and realised that the walking I was doing was faster than my slowest running pace. So I decided to try and run. I rang for 9 ... Read more
Sometimes it's about rewards
Wednesday, May 22, 2013      6 comments

Since starting on SP, I've been good. I've tracked all exercise, tracked all foods (the good the bad and the ugly) blogged, read articles you name it. Yesterday I rewarded myself. Most days I tend to eat in the lower area of my calorie goal. ... Read more
Weigh in Day
Tuesday, May 21, 2013      5 comments

Still not running but back in race walking. Last night was my first real race since hurting my glut. I wasn't expecting much and was concentrating on keeping my form right rather than the time. It was only a 800m race but I wanted to test out... Read more

I didn't blog over the weekend because I have been dealing with an issue that occurred at work on Friday. My boss demanded that I do something illegal. When I went higher and looked for support, I was told to do it anyway. I felt and stil... Read more
No bread!!!!
Friday, May 17, 2013      6 comments

I have managed to go 5 days without bread. Yay me. I was soooo tempted to get a finger bun when doing the shopping tonight, to the point where I drifted very very slowly past the bakery window but was determined not to give in. I have taken o... Read more
Why we go to trainers
Wednesday, May 15, 2013      3 comments

Last night I had my weekly trainer session. I'd caught up with him the night before and talked about how my left butt wasn't activating. Last night we concentrated on exercises to switch it on. He also called in another trainer to help and ma... Read more
